New Delhi, September 25
Automobile dealer body FADA on Friday said the closure of Harley-Davidson’s operations in India would lead to job loss for up to 2,000 workers across the brand’s 35 dealerships. Harley-Davidson on Thursday said it is discontinuing sales and manufacturing operations in the country.
The India action will include an associated workforce reduction of around 70 employees, it had said in a SEC filing.
The Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA) said besides job loss, the exit of the American cult bike maker would also lead to a loss of up to Rs 130 crore for the brand’s dealer partners in the country. — PTI
